Reece was the principal speaker
at the first session of the conven

He said the Democratic party is
"torn by philosophic and sectional
differences" and "is incapable -if
offering an effective resistance lo
the march of radical aggression."
The New Deal, he said, opened
the door to radicals in government.
Describing the Irepubfkans as

is terribly dull and hopeless be
cause its members have no imag

the world and what must be done
if it is to survive.
"It is an apparently hopeless

what God wants us to see and the.
vision of Christ, we might have a
